Top tips to remember when visiting your local Recycling Centre

Household Waste Recycling Centres can get very busy; please be patient if visiting during peak times.

  • Due to social distancing rules, queues are possible at the sites. Do not queue outside the sites; this is a potential danger for other road users. Drivers found queuing will initially be asked to move on. Failure to do so could result in a £70 fine.
  • Site staff are not currently able to offer assistance, so please make sure that you can unload your vehicle and deposit your waste into the appropriate container on your own
  • Only waste from your own place of residence in Sheffield can be accepted.

We would encourage residents with significant volumes of DIY waste and garden waste to consider contacting a registered skip hire company.

Residents can arrange for collections to take place from their home for both garden waste and bulky waste.
